  5. From the context menu of your project's Reference folder, select Add » References…
  6. Select the newly added ExternalLogging project.
  7. Open the web.config file of your Sitefinity CMS application and configure Raygun by adding a config section and  a RaygunSettings configuration block in the following way:

    NOTE: You can check the Raygun GitHub readme file for additional information about how to configure your application's web.config file.
